Northaven United Methodist Church pastor Eric Folkerth spoke at City Hall yesterday in support of immigration reform and tomorrow’s Mega March. Members of Northaven will march tomorrow with members of sister church Christ’s Foundry United Methodist, a Hispanic congregation in Northwest Dallas.
Among the attendees will be Jan Sanders (pictured), a Northaven member and widow of federal judge Barefoot Sanders, who was instrumental in desegregating Dallas schools. In December, I wrote about her efforts to put her husband’s neck ties to good use, giving them to impoverished Latin American women to incorporate into purses and handbags, which were then sold at Northaven.
Attendees will be meeting at Mockingbird Station to take the DART train downtown. More information is available on the church’s blog.
